  • All Blacks Form

    After watching the last three All Blacks test matches.... "Are you comfortable with the All Blacks form going into the tri-nations?" Who is to blame for the way the All Blacks are playing now? Are we heading in the right direction for Rugby World Cup 2011?

  • The 2008-2009 NHL Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cup

    38 years is the amount of time it's taken for a team that was 0-2 down to come back from behind and win the Stanley Cup. Dan Bylsma is the rookie coach of the Pittsburgh Penguins who now boasts this achievement. In beating the Detroit Red Wings in a seven game series with the last game at the Joe Louis Arena. Most people would think you have got to be joking!

  • Sonic Youth - The Eternal Review

    Sonic Youth has released studio album number 16!  How many bands do you know that have been together over 28 years & show no signs of slowing creatively? The Eternal is out now and I've got my copy direct from Matador Records, NYC.

  • Placebo - Battle For The Sun Review

    A Placebo album release can be a nervously exciting experience as they are a band with so much talent and ideas. You really do not know what to expect as each album has been so different from the last. I can happily announce that Placebo has delivered their most accessible and refreshing release to date.

  • The Stanley Cup Final

    We are two games in and have the same matchup as last season.  The Detroit Red Wings versus The Pittsburgh Penguins. You may have a sense of deja vu as the Red Wings are up 2-0. What can the Penguins do to stop them?

  • The Super 14 Rugby - Final

    The Super 14 Rugby competition has come down to the two best teams in the Chiefs and the Bulls. Here is an analysis of who will win the 2009 tournament.

    The Waikato Chiefs vs. The Pretoria Bulls at Loftus Versfeld, South Africa

  • The Super 14 Rugby - Semi Finals

    The Super 14 Rugby competition this year had been a close contest right to the end of the round robin. The four finalists have been determined. Three NZ franchises and one South African franchise have prevailed. Now, who will win at all from here? It will not be easy for any team!

  • The NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs - Conference Finals

    The Stanley Cup playoffs have just experienced one of the best rounds in history.  Three series went to the seventh game! Two ended in a heart-breaking fashion. One ended in a blow out. The other series had a big surprise. The last round showed how hard it is to get to the conference finals. What it takes to get to the Stanley Cup Final. Here is my Finals analysis.

  • Super 14 Rugby Week - 14th Round

    This coming weekend is the final week of the Super 14 round robin. Seven teams are contesting for the final four playoff spots making this the closest competition in recent memory.  It is pleasing to say that three of the New Zealand franchises are right in it. The South African & Australian teams are going to factor in the last week also.
